Please Sign To Save Saeed

Friends,
Below is part of a letter from Saeed, a pastor and American citizen who has recently begun serving an eight year prison sentence in an Iranian prison because of his faith in Christ.  The entire letter, revealing a courageous heart and a shining witness of the love and strength the Lord gives, can be read by clicking here:

“So:

~~See your golden opportunities in pressures and difficulties.

~~See the Shining Morning Star in the dark times of your life.

I Love Him! He is Gracious, Merciful, and Righteous to me. I now know that I have not been forgotten and that we are together in this path. God gives me Grace.

This is my message for the Church: Stay Strong for His Glory. He will come back soon! Be with God and give your best efforts for His kingdom.

Pastor Saeed, servant of Jesus Christ in chains for endurance of Gospel. I love you all.”

The article from the ACLJ adds this:  “Share his letter.  Pray.  Join over a quarter of a million others, and sign the petition at SaveSaeed.org.”

Jesus tells us to visit those in prison. (Matt. 25:36) If we can’t do that, we can certainly do the next best things by doing what the ACLJ is asking us to do so that Saeed may receive his rights and freedom.  And may we also take to heart Saeed’s exhortations to us about taking advantage of our own opportunities amid dark times.

Sincerely,
with love,
Rachel
